Great Ice Cream

We had a group of 7 and decided to stop in for ice cream. No complaints there! It was fabulous - from the banana split to the plain scoop. We loved it all. The fries were delicious, too. The place has lots of atmosphere as well, although it is a tight fit in terms of seating. The long wait... read more

Good clean fun. Great burgers and handmade ice-cream. The place is packed with locals if that tells you anything. Lots of personality and things to look at. The front of the restaurant is an old fashioned candy store. Definitely worth the trip on your Fort Lauderdale/Dania Beach trip. Great casual dining experience. Just a bit on the pricey side for...

Although we had to queue outside for 20 minutes, it was warm so no problem. We (4 adults + 2 children) were escorted to our table, which was spotless. After organising drinks our food order was taken and quickly delivered - a lot of it, very nicely cooked and presented - We agreed - the best burgers we have ever... More

This is not the place to go for a fast food experience despite the fact that it's what the menu indicates. Service is very slow and quite unorganized (I recognize that food is made to order but 45 minutes to produce a grilled cheese sandwich is ridiculous). HOWEVER, go for the ice cream! Portions are huge and delicious. Sides are... More

As a Florida Native, my grandparents used to always take us to Jaxon's for a special treat. What kid doesn't love getting a scoop of ice cream (which theirs is really two scoops, so we thought that was coolest thing!) on a cone rolled in sprinkles? Wind the clock forward 30+ years and here I am, with my own kids... More

This place is amazing! From the food to the service to the feel of the 1970's diner/ice-cream parlor feel... the decor makes you feel like you're in a different era! LOVE THIS PLACE!

I bring all my out of town guests here as well as friends and family. It is such a cute, great old fashioned place. Even a little store. There is a Pressed Penny machine at this location :)

The BEST family friendly diner/ice cream parlour is here (and been here for the past 60 years!) This place is fabulous, my younger family member had an enormous ice cream, I had hot dawg myself. I want to say a big thank you to this place, although the line is always busy, my family of 7 were given a seat... More
